Bridging the Gap to Prosperity
Step Up Savannah’s 13th Annual Meeting & Breakfast
Much like the rest of the country, our community faces a growing racial wealth divide. These disparities are nationally demonstrated by black and Latino families’ household net worth standing at $9,250 and $12,550 respectively compared to $127,200 for white households.* Considering that Chatham County households of color are 3.5 times more likely to live in poverty than white households, the impact of this issue and its possible solutions are relevant to the economic health of Savannah and Chatham County.
Join Step Up and local business, neighborhood, and community leaders as we examine how the wealth gap impacts our community as well as the interventions that could reverse these trends. We will also celebrate the winners of the Creating Opportunity Awards.
- Date: Friday, October 19th
- Time: 8:00am to 10:00am
- Location: Savannah State University, Student Union Ballroom
- Keynote Speaker: Dedrick Asante-Muhammed of Prosperity Now
This community event is open to all at no charge but an RSVP is required.
